Apologies if this has been asked over and over. That said, what is considered canon, for example, a battlecruiser's hull markings, hull number (e.g. BC-566) and name (e.g. HMS Heracles) or just hull number or just ship's name?

According to Jayne's, it's Hull Number in large font on top of the name in smaller font (all caps, left-justified). If the ship is a flagship, then there is a formation flag indicating the level (fleet, squadron, etc.) and the rank of the flag officer. Here's an example from when HMS Hector was the First Fleet flagship: http://www.raynsedge.net/hector/

About us

Welcome to The Royal Manticoran Navy: The Official Honor Harrington Fan Association's Forums. We are here to celebrate the work of David Weber and the universe he has created in his Honor Harrington books. Our hierarchy structure is set up based on what is in the books. We have gone to great lengths to make sure we are as true to the books as possible, using the books, and input from David Weber and Ad Astra as our guide. We want you to have a positive fandom experience, so please explore all our site has to offer and if you like what you see, feel free to join us. All we ask is that you remember one thing; no matter what you do, Do It With Honor!
